saying their budgets are going to be cut. then the pentagon came out the next day and said we're going to have to lay off 800,000 civilian workers or furlough them one day a week. yesterday you had lahood, the transportation secretary come to the white house briefing room and say we're going to have delays in air traffic, shut down air traffic control. this tactic is because the white house recognizes they're trying to sway public opinion and put pressure from the outside on republicans. it's interesting. a poll came out just this week that said the vast majority of americans don't know a lot about these cuts that are coming down. the white house is trying to change that. the white house is still working, hoping for a deal. but i get a sense that most of washington and probably even at the white house they recognize we could go past the sequester at least for a few weeks, and there's going to be another chance late in march where the continuing spending resolution comes up or expires and they're going to have to negotiate deal on that. and it all could just be wrapped up into one. >> d

layoffs of teachers, law enforcement and food safety inspectors. and, the pentagon will be hit, too. they propose a mix of spending cuts and, yes, more taxes, through limiting deductions, for the wealthy. i sat down late friday with house democratic leader nancy pelosi and asked her about the fast-approaching deadline. congressman pelosi, welcome back to fox news sunday. >> welcome to the capitol. >> chris: the white house says, sequestration will have a severe effect on many americans. house republicans agree. but they say the answer is to find other spending cuts, not tax hikes. >> well, i think that the sequestration is a bad idea, all around. it is something that is out of the question. the fact is, we have had plenty of spending cuts, $1.6 trillion in the budget control act. what we need is growth, growth with jobs and if you have spending cuts, education of our children, other investments, where you are hindering growth, you are no going to reduce the deficit. so, what we do need is more revenue, and more cuts, but i would like to see that a big, balanced, bold proposal. and s
live with those cutbacks to the pentagon. so isn't there a spending problem here that must be addressed? >> absolutely. and i believe as chairman of the defense appropriations subcommittee and in the senate that we can save money, cut waste in the pentagon, and not compromise our national security. but to do this in such a haphazard way over the remaining six or seven months is going to be unfair to the military and our families. think about this for a second. cutting back on psychological counseling for the members of the military and their family during the remainder of this year when we have this grievous problem of suicides in the military and readjustment when they come home from battle. we can't do that. >> but isn't there always a reason to spend the money in washington? >> no. >> can't you always find a reason not to cut? isn't this the republican argument that at least here, if worse comes to worse and the sequester happens, we'll at least get spending cuts. how else to force the president's hand? >> do we really want to base our spending cuts reducing medical research in ameri
to make cuts that are coherent than at the level of the entire pentagon. the more discretion you give the white house, the easier these cuts might go. so senator republicans of that said, we're willing to give you that discretion. house republicans are gearing up to pass legislation along those lines as well. the thing is that senate democrats are not going to go along with it and the president doesn't want to go along with it. if the president has that discretion to see to it those cults don't have such disastrous effects then the president actually owns the cuts that he actually has to make. so partly there's a pass the buck dynamic going on here as well. >> let me jump through this quickly on one quick question. if, in fact, this does not -- the sequester comes through and the economy gets into trouble, next year we go to the midterm votes, do you think voters will look back and say, it was the republicans' fault? or do you think by then it will be the usual equation of, you're the party in charge, democrats, the economy's failing again, it's your fault, you pay? what do you think?
's a constitutional duty, however, the pentagon should be audited. some estimated 25 billion in savings by auditing it. i'm for it. even on the sequester talk about 800,000 civilians are going to be laid off from the pentagon. i don't believe it because the pentagon is increasing their budget as a result of this. in terms of real dollars. let me ask you this, i see four senate stars, you're one of them. and you, marco, ted cruz and mike lee seem to be the strong conservative voices that i look to to bring some sanity back to washington. now, are you all friends. >> yep, we have lunch together a couple times a week. >> and and with the whole crew and we eat together and we get along and work on different issues together and i see a lot of the freshness being new members in the senate, and the system beats you down and that's why i'm a big believer in term limits. we need more rollover, more turnover because after you've been there for a while it's hard to have the energy it takes to combat government, it's hard to combat that government. >> a lot of speculation, you might run for president. >> i know i
're less than a month away from massive layoffs and cuts in spending at the pentagon and elsewhere. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning. they call this the sequester and both signs long predicted it could harm the economy if the cuts are allowed to kick in. instead of working together to do something about it they resorted to the blame game a month before the deadline. republicans may be the party of spending cuts but on monday house speaker john boehner insisted the looming sequester was the president's idea. >> the president first proposed this sequester in 2011 and insisted that it be part of the debt limit agreement. >> reporter: unless congress acts the package of cuts worth $1.2 trillion will start to kick in march 1st, taking a $55 billion bite out of this year's defense budget and $27 billion from domestic discretionary spending. according to the congressional budget office more than 1 million jobs are at risk. defense secretary leon panetta had this warning. >> we are going to weaken the united states and make it much more difficult t
a lot of their members don't want the damage that this could do to the pentagon? >> well, and this is where the president is going to bring down the hammer the hardest and try the most. but, what is notable here, paul, even the republicans who have some qualms about how this is going to a hit defense. even they, the vast majority of them understand the necessities, strategic, policy-wise politically of allowing the sequester to go into effect and given that the law is kicking in on march 1st, there isn't any real legislative options that's open to, that republicans would go for that would change this. >> if republicans give in on a tax increase again, they are toast in 2014. when we come back, new york city saw murders plummet in 2012 to their lowest rate in 50 years, but the policy many say is responsible for that historic success is coming under attack. should stop and frisk be a thing of the past? . my bad. tell me you have good insurance. yup, i've got...
